Condolences to the Family

September 05, 2020

To the family of Dick Evans,I am sorry to read of the passing of Dick. You have my deepest sympathy. I knew Dick for many years at Warfel Construction. He was an outstanding carpenter and a truly nice guy! When my father was president of Warfel, he picked Dick to lead the conversion of a small garage and warehouse on Fulton Street in Lancaster into my parent’s residence. Dick’s finished project pleased my parents so much. They enjoyed his craftsmanship for many years. Dick will be fondly remembered by all those who knew him at Warfel. Sincerely,Tim Peters Chairman Emeritus
